Ketchikan Borough Election
I believe it is important for us to have choice when electing our officials, and I want to serve and represent the voice of our community. We need to focus on solutions that will put our community’s future first. I am running for Borough Assembly because I am engaged and invested in our community and want us to thrive year-round.
My experience and passion positions me to serve in this capacity. Having grown up in a rural logging community affected by industry change, I understand the challenge our community has experienced. While looking for opportunity, I joined the U.S. Air Force. As a combat veteran, I learned early on the value of sound leadership and decision-making. This experience encouraged me to further my education. I graduated from Portland State University with an Electrical Engineering degree and now hold a Professional Engineering license.
I started my career in public service and became an engineer and manager focused on problem solving while working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, a worldwide leader in hydroelectric power. I have continued my public service career working in energy for our local utility and have valuable input towards energy solutions affecting the Borough.
As part of my community involvement, I work as a high school basketball official and in youth activities. I have had the unique opportunity to see our youth develop over the years; they are our future. We need to ensure our young people can succeed in this community. The decisions we make now will have a lasting impact for our families.
Some of the important issues facing us are appropriate funding to meet community needs, tourism, maintaining a capable Borough workforce, effective energy strategies, and affordable housing. When it comes to these important issues, we need to have experienced people in place to make decisions for our future. I believe I can help make a difference, and I will put our community’s future first. It would be a privilege to serve my community in this capacity and I would be honored to have your support.
